Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #2

Impala 6-cyl

  • 30,000 miles


The only event leading to the failure was a loud sound coming from the rear left side of the vehicle. The failure involved a pull to the left and excessive heat being generated from the back left tire. The component that failed ended up being the wheel bearing. I had a mechanic replace it and also kept the old part. The old bearing was scorched (the mechanic showed me) and warped. The bearing could have locked up had it not been replaced, resulting in an accident.
